100 Best Plants For The Ontario Garden: The Botanical Bones Of Great Gardening
by Steve Whysall

Steve now lives in Vancouver, but for a while lived in Ontario and became very aware of what grew there...and didn't. In this book he describes 100 plants best suited and includes the basics..latin name, common name, where to plant, how to care for and what other plants make good companions for it. He also includes his choice 'collector' plants in each listing and I like the boxes beside each that include location, type, size, conditions, flowering time and zone.

All in all a good book to get for some one who has just moved to Ontario and doesn't know where to start in planning their garden.
